Was recommended to use K5pro paste for my VRAM and VRMs and viewed LinusTTs about it.
Anyone else use it?
How long does it lasts?

I repasted my i7-10750H/115w rtx2060 GL65 Leopard a few months ago with MX-4 on everything that had paste applied with the tube I had on hand but it seems the temps are coming up to TJmax for the CPU.
What would you use for the CPU and GPU, K5pro or other paste?
Might still use the MX-4 for the CPU and GPU, says it last 2-3 years. Seems the K5pro can be reused, just add to it and you can scrap off the fresh K5 and put it back in the tub.

Would prefer to get it from another market other than Amazon since they wrongly restricted my account and won't look into it.

thx, d.

I am not sure about that k5pro, but I have had good luck with T-Global TG-PP-10 Thermal Putty..... I have seen 7-10C Drops in component temps depending on the application. I would use Thermal Grizzly on the cpu/gpu and the thermal putty on the mem/vrm/chokes.

**Just a Quick Edit here....

If you do not like amazon you can get the thermal putty here: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/t-global-technology/TG-PP10-50/6204863

K5pro can be found on the egg: https://www.newegg.com/p/2MB-0028-00004

I might have to create and new Amazon account so I can leave reviews, ask and answer questions again. Also looks like I have to bump up my order to 25usd to use their lockers.
I have to change my card address and find a different mailing spot since Newegg doesn't recognize General Delivery addresses.
Digikey will slap a 7usd S&H fee on so they're out of the question since I have nothing else to order for them.
Shame AliExpress doesn't sell it.
Hopefully a 20g tub is enough.

Man, why is it Newegg is the only place that doesn't allow General Delivery for shipping and bill!?
